Interesting what a father sets aside. Found a few decades of my artwork in a box of his. Newspaper art, comics strips, advertising pieces, comic books and personal artwork.
Spent weekend moving my father’s things to my house. Great thanks to brother Jeff Smith, his friend Steve and old pal James Goddard for the enormous amount of help! James even found a 40th birthday comic book I had done for him and his twin brother.
Had a whirlwind last three days with little rest and lots done! Sunday I inked this set of cartoons for my Swampy’s Florida site.
Inked with a PITT Brush, soft brush and Tombow Fudenosuke hard brush pen.
This project dropped in as I drove to Lakeland Saturday afternoon and needed by Sunday night. Penciling and inking is easy. Coloring is the time eater.
This was inked with a Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pen – Hard and a PITT medium pen.
Thought I’d add a small bit of an editorial cartoon i did tonight. This is the now infamous Melissa Click of the University of Missouri. I’m posting this involving producing the art and not the politics.
Inked with a Kuretake brush, she was easy to draw. Coloring even easier. Drawing so many family members who have red, curly hair over the decades, this was easy! So, I include the color version used in the final cartoon, too.
If you would like to see the whole cartoon, let me know below or in a private message and I’ll send you over to my editorial cartoon Facebook page. I’ve kept it kinda quiet, but you can join in, if you would like.
An illustration inked today while attending a meeting of a great group watching over our Florida springs, the Silver Springs Alliance.
Inked with Kuretake brush and PITT medium pen.
This is the inked #cartoon art for a coloring page that I still have to set up with border, logo and contact information. It’s for Got Candy & More in Lakeland, Florida. Great spot to get lots of homemade goodies, cup cakes & ice cream.
I couldn’t work at Got Candy! The very idea of being constantly surrounded with yummy cupcakes, homemade candy and ice cream is terrifying. That along with the obvious embezzlement of confectioneries that would send me up the river for a few terms at Raiford.
This was inked with Paper Mate medium Flair, PITT soft brush, and a Kuretake brush.
#DailyInks #1 – Been inking ALOT today!! Easier to show a table of it! Met with pal Barbara at Axum Coffee Shop in Winter Garden, Florida, to get an illustration for her started and went from there. Lots done. Swampy’s Florida Happy cartoons, editorial cartoons, caricature, coloring page, milk cartons, etc. etc. About four hours worth. And there’s still more to do! Thanks to my new young writer friend Amira for snapping this shot!
